This is an incredibly lucky escape for the guy.


This is the terrifying moment a skydiver was left plummeting 12,500ft to the ground after he was knocked out in a skydiving accident.

James Lee, 25 was taking part in a jump in Wiltshire when just seconds after leaping from the plane he was hit on the back of the head by another skydiver.

The blow knocked him out and sent him hurtling towards the ground uncontrollably.

Luckily two other skydivers noticed something was wrong and chased after their unconscious colleague.

After realising he was unresponsive the two men managed to roll James into a more stable position and deploy his parachute for a safe landing.

It wasn't until James was under the canopy that he began to regain consciousness, he landed safely on the ground with no memory of the drama that had unfolded seconds earlier.




Ive never understood why people would want to jump out of a perfectly good aircraft unless they had to.

Holy crap! You couldn't pay me a billion dollars to jump out of a plane. My brother did it a few times. He's a little nutty.

I guess he owes those two guys a beer, and the guy who knocked him out owes him a 6 pack…

Awesome footage, and a good ending to boot.
How fortunate that his fellow jumpers were paying attention!
